Recent developments in membrane technology, an increasingly important method of water filtration, are largely based on advances in nanotechnology. Membrane-based methods of water filtration include microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, and reverse osmosis. The use of nanomaterials in these...
Helmut Kaiser Consultancy has released a study of the global water disinfection, treatment, and purification markets, including the opportunities and risks associated with recent nanotechnology and molecular technology innovations for water disinfection and purification. The report summary says that...
The ICPC-NanoNet project, an European Union (EU) funded project that brings together partners from the EU, China, India, Russia and Africa with the goal of providing wider access to published nanoscience research and opportunities for collaboration, has announced an online workshop, "Nanotechnology...
Researchers from the Atomic Research Centre in India are researching how carbon nanotubes could enable simple and easy to use water filtration systems that remove arsenic, fluoride, heavy metals, and toxic organic contaminants. According to the researchers, carbon nanotube-based water purification systems...
Researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the U.S. have found a method for using low-voltage electricity to control the flow of water through nanotubes, a finding which could lead to new near-instantaneous desalination technology. Nanotube membranes provide high flow rates and high selectivity,...
Researchers from Israel and the U.S. are collaborating on four nanotechnology-based water treatment projects focused on membranes and membrane processes, biofouling and disinfection, contaminants removal, and environmental monitoring and sensors. The article says that water purification is one of "the...
This article explores nanotechnology approaches to water purification, an application of nanotechnology that advocates suggest could contribute to solutions for some of the major problems faced globally, such as ensuring safe drinking water for a growing population, as well as addressing issues in medicine,...
The Israel National Nanotechnology Initiative (INNI) website says that Israel is, and will continue to be, at the forefront of nanotechnological innovation. The website says: "Nanotechnology is a natural enabler for Israel. In fact, our small size is also our advantage - it means sharper focus,...
A series of "nano-dialogues" on whether nanotechnology can contribute to social and economic development was held this month through collaboration between charity Practical Action, think-tank Demos, and the University of Lancaster, all based in the UK. The article says that the meetings focused...
This article explores research being conducted within the nanotechnological field to improve water membrane technologies.  Water purification membranes are used in many applications, with a variety of different types currently under development.  While no membrane can filter and purify water...
